Palm reveals 5 new devices in webOS 2.0 code
We were all a little hesitant about HP's acquisition of Palm. Would they change the iconic Palm devices we'd come to love? Would they change webOS for the worse? Our fears have obviously been allayed by the news about the upcoming Palm Pre 2, which should be available for pre-order tomorrow.

WebOS Internals has poured over the webOS 2.0 build from SFR (a French mobile company). They uncovered 5 new codenames for upcoming devices: Broadway, Windsor, Stingray, Mantaray, and Roadrunner. You've already heard the Roadrunner moniker before, which is reportedly the first touchscreen-only device from Palm.

If we had to guess, the Stingray is probably the all-touch device, as the animal is smooth and flat. It would also follow that the Mantaray is the name of their upcoming tablet. We can't venture a guess for the others, but Palm fans are thrilled either way. While we loved the Pre and the Pixi, we've been eager for more variety in the Palm lineup.

The Pre 2, available only from Verizon Wireless (at least for now), is expected to launch within the next few days. The first webOS 2.0 collaboration between HP and Palm will showcase a 1GHz processor, a 3.1-inch HVGA Gorilla Glass display, and a 5 megapixel camera (up from 3MP).
